This Couple Who Thinks Their Baby Is Haunted Needs To Stop Watching Scary Movies
I love a good scary movie as much as the next person, and all parents want to believe that their child is extra special, but these parents who think they caught a ghost on film with their child have watched The Omen one too many times.
I was scrolling through my Twitter feed this morning when I came across this gem from the Daily Mail. Adorable one-year-old Lexi Hood was playing peek-a-boo with her parents. Like so many of us, Mom and Dad were filming the moment, because toddler playing peek-a-boo equals adorable video to watch and remind yourself why you love your children when they’ve tossed the scrambled eggs you made them directly on to the floor for the second time this week.
The Hoods claim that while innocently playing, Lexi was knocked over by a mysterious and unseen force. They also claim that after she fell, Lexi said, “Naughty Boy” as though she was reprimanding someone or something that wasn’t visible. Ever since the incident, the Hoods say they’ve have been peering into empty rooms to make sure they don’t contain supernatural house guests. Intrigued? Grab the popcorn and turn the lights off, let’s watch:
Sorry Hood family, but all I see is gravity in action. Sure, the fall looks a little odd, but having two toddlers of my own afoot, I see tumbles like this all day long. If little Lexi is being haunted, then I better go call the Ghostbusters myself. Even if Lexi is very “sturdy on her feet” as her father described her, this is the tale a little girl falling while playing. No need for a poorly produced sequel. (The Woman in Black 2? Really?)
